Dogs’ treatment is a disgrace
Re: “Seized dogs haven’t been walked in months,” Friday, Richmond Review.
These dogs are being punished for being dogs and the punishment is completely out of proportion to their sins which were very minor. They got out and scared some kids—no one was hurt—and nipped the hand of a worker at the construction site, causing a small bruise. They are beautiful animals that have not done anything except to seize an opportunity to run around like fools and have a great time.
I understand the owners took full responsibility and have secured their yard to prevent the dogs from escaping. According to your excellent article, the experts agree that these dogs are not dangerous and are suffering real injury by being caged and away from their loving home.
Fine the owners and return the dogs with a stern warning. This state of affairs is a disgrace. Thank you for drawing our attention to it.
